Today I will be sharing some thoughts about the first workshop I hosted this summer: Puffins in the Midnight Sun. I hosted this bird photography focused workshop together with the amazing Anja Robanke.
A lot of people travelling to Iceland, have asked me how to photograph the Northern Lights before. The aurora season has just started last week, so I thought it was definitely a good time to write this journal entry.

Over the years I found that investing in great and durable outdoor gear is an absolute necessity if you're serious about any kind of nature photography. The one thing I've regularly struggled with is finding the right gloves.
